kik This should clear it up: NEW FOR 2010:

- Wrangler X and Wrangler Unlimited X renamed Sport
- Two-door Wrangler Sport adds standard cloth seats with driver’s height adjuster and front seat map pockets, floor mats, temperature gauge, compass, full-length floor console, fog lamps, new bumper assembly with tow hooks, sliding sun visors with mirrors, front dome lamp with on/off switch, Interactive Decel Fuel Shut-Off, and on automatic transmission-equipped models, a Fuel Saver Indicator
- Sahara adds standard satin silver finish 18-inch aluminum painted wheels
- Rubicon adds standard satin carbon 17-inch aluminum finish painted wheels
- New optional Rubicon Wheel and Tire Group offered on Wrangler Sport
- Two-tone leather optional on Sahara and Rubicon models, replacing Limited package
- Sunrider soft top easier to use; dual-top models include hardtop storage bag
- UConnect hands-free phone added to CD/DVD/MP3 Media Centre radio
- Wrangler Sport S adds available 32-inch Tire and Wheel Group package
- Exterior colours: Surf Blue Pearl, Natural Green Pearl and Dark Charcoal Pearl added; Jeep Green Metallic, Detonator Yellow and Sunburst Orange Pearl discontinued
- Sahara model now available in all colours, adding Stone White, Flame Red and Surf Blue Pearl

For 2010, the base Jeep Wrangler models change their names: formerly the Wrangler X and Wrangler Unlimited X, they are now called Sport. The Wrangler Sport receives considerable new standard equipment missing on the X, including upgraded seats, new gauges, a full-length floor console, new bumper, and Interactive Decel Fuel Shut-Off, which cuts the fuel supply on deceleration for improved fuel economy.

Other changes include new wheel finishes for the Sahara and Rubicon, the addition of UConnect phone to the CD/DVD/MP3 Media Centre stereo, and a soft top that’s easier to use.

The Wrangler is available as the two-door Wrangler, or as the four-door Wrangler Unlimited, in Sport, Sahara and Rubicon trim lines. All use a 3.8-litre V6 with six-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic, and with part-time four-wheel drive.

Features on the Wrangler Sport include 16-inch steel wheels, full-framed doors with roll-up windows, black fender flares, fog lamps, black manual mirrors, tow hooks, Sunrider soft top, variable intermittent wipers, rear under-floor storage bin, floor console with locking bin, front floor mats, CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input, two-tone cloth bucket seats, driver’s height adjustment, fold-and-tumble second-row bench seat, tilt steering column, removable carpet panels with floor drain plugs, Dana 30 solid front axle, Dana 44 heavy-duty solid rear axle, 3.21 axle ratio, hill start assist, skid plates, and tire pressure monitoring system.

The Wrangler Sport S package adds 17-inch alloy wheels, deep-tinted windows, cruise control, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Unlimited Sport is equipped similarly to the Sport S, but adds a 60/40 split-folding and reclining second-row bench seat, and front and rear floor mats.

The Wrangler Sahara builds on the Sport S and adds 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, body-colour fender flares, tubular side steps, Freedom Top three-piece modular hardtop, power locks with keyless entry, security alarm, power windows with auto-down, premium Infinity speakers and subwoofer, and heavy-duty suspension.

The Unlimited Sahara is similarly equipped.

The Wrangler Rubicon builds on the Sport S and adds 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, power locks with keyless entry, power windows with auto-down, security alarm, premium Infinity speakers and subwoofer, Dana 44 heavy-duty solid front axle, 4.10 axle ratio, front and rear remote electronic locking differentials, performance-tuned suspension, and electronic disconnecting front sway bar.

The Unlimited Rubicon is similarly equipped.

Depending on the trim line, available options include half-metal doors, dual hard- and soft-top package with storage bag, trailer tow package, navigation system, and leather seats.

CruserBruiser from my quick google search it appears the only difference is the sport sticker and the cost. You can expect to pay about $1000 more for the 2010.

kik For 2010 there is the Sport (for the most part the 09 X), Sport S, Islander, Sahara and Rubicon. In order of basic to not so basic.

Ozarkharleyguy I bought a Sport but heck if I know. Found what I wanted and a deal I could live with so good enuff. Good question but if I were you I'd make myself happy.

MOz Not JK expert, but it sound like a different sticker to me.

InfernoGirl Well no...... One was made in '09, the other in '10..... Sorry, couldn't help myself....

Pretty sure you are correct.
